Our little flock of...five??

Yes, you read it right, that says F-I-V-E five!! On September 4th, which also happened to be our 7th anniversary, I took a test, a very simple test. It was confirmed.. + 2!!

Of course the test did not tell us there were two, thanks to early ultrasounds we found that I have, not one, but two peas in the pod.

Not exactly the plan for the first semester of grad school in a brand new city but, hey, we're used to curve balls, Er, sort of. Okay, truth be told, maybe this is the biggest curve ball we've ever been thrown. I was happy and at the same time I felt all of the blood leave my face as the ultrasound tech tilted the screen my way telling me that she was seeing "not one but TWO".

Our bambinos are due in late April. I have a doctor's appointment this Friday morning with a specialist who will look at the babies more closely. They will be able to determine the level of risk as far as how much they will be sharing (amniotic sacs, placenta etc.) while in utero.

We are excited and scared but we are trusting in our God "who gives life to all things". 1 Timothy 6:13

Excuse me while I wipe the dust from this page.

My words are coming and I do have a good excuse for my Summer hibernation mode. I really do.
In the meantime here is what I have been missing lately...

Here is where our lives have been planted...

...and we are praying that they will soon take root and come out of this Season of change. It has been a long Season.

This face
has brought me so much JOY and LAUGHTER and EUCHARISTEO! These past few months...

You knew most of this of course but I just needed to write it. I promise there is more! Stay tuned for another update VERY VERY Soon!!!
